of you who focus on san francisco, san francisco is participating in this recovery in a way that it never did before in terms of the number of people living here and the kind of jobs that are being created here. we spent a lot of time talking about the risks of what could happen. what could happen in europe? what is the slowdown in china mean? is is there a double-dip recession? and those are clearly things to think about, but i would postulate to you what should happen after the election, regardless of who should win, the broader u.s. economy does move forward? if we can get the u.s. economy out of second gear, we have seen the broader housing market turn and we're beginning to see the foundations of some job-growth. if the economy can pick up more broadly, what that would mean for san francisco, given the foundation that we have set for us today? clearly looking forward we think the physical boundaries of what is downtown will change. the type of space the tenants want will change. we think that this is a very good time for san francisco. we live in an exceptional time. and i'm go

over the years there have been various proposals to allow non-citizen members of san francisco to vote in city elections. in your opinion, which city elections, if any, should be open to participation by non-citizen residents and which non-citizen residents should be allowed to vote in those elections? >> the harsh reality is that so many non-citizens still have children in our public schools here in san francisco, throughout the state of california and throughout the united states. as all of you undoubtedly know. with that being said, it's vitally important that those parents still have a say in the education of their children. i would certainly support and promote voting by those parents in school board elections in san francisco. by implication own a community college election would fit in that rubric, to support college advancement to people who have traditionally been put at the margins of our society. in those two elections, i think, are the most fundamental in the sense that they go to the root of advancement in this country and the obtaining of the american dream. so the s

storefront businesses and more are on the way. in central market and throughout the city, san francisco has created an environment that embraces and celebrates innovation. innovation is not a significant driver of economic growth, but it enables us to tackle some of the most long-standing problems and historic challenges that we face. that's why i continue to support and promote innovation in both the civic and private sectors to create a better san francisco. and with all of these technology companies that are moving into the city, we need to make sure that our work force is trained and ready to fill these positions. to do this we have launched tech sf with an $8 million dollar grant from the department of labor that will provided case, training and job placement assistance in the tech sector. whether it's for young people coming out of high school or college or people retooling in the middle of their careers or are returning our veterans who want a chance to work in our technology industry, we're working hard to ensure san francisco residents have the skills, the training and the opportun

know, for a city that's like san francisco supposed to be very democratic your procedures are actually not very democratic at all when you compare them to other major cities. so that's something you also should be aware of. i just really think that it's not a friendly inviting thing to do, to chastise members of the public for how they give you public comment unless they are really really over the top, yelling, saying rude inappropriate things, which i didn't hear anybody doing tonight. i heard them expressing opinions with passion. they didn't necessarily -- i think you have to be respectful of the public. >> president chiu: next speaker please. >> my name is greg cayman. i actually wanted to echo what steve hill said. i may not be as eloquent but i too was pretty taken aback at some of the comments of the supervisors in particular, you know, supervisor from district 4. you know, i was really taken aback at how vicious, how mean spirited some of her comments were, berating some of the people in public comment. >> president chiu: if i could -- >> we don't work for you. remembe

difficult for me to speak on this subject and every time i do it gets harder and easier at the same time. i'm a domestic violenceüf shp &c"p% survivor, was beaten pretty badly as a child. and so it's difficult for me to (nñ watch all this, to watch the testimony hear are different perspectives on it.knc it's also pains me to hear the division between violence advocates and those on the left because we've been such strong#30e look forward to when that dynamic changes. i would say this domestic violence survivor it is not easy to stand here and sayzm%z i believe in redemption. it is not easy for me to stand here9lt and say i believe if restorative justice. it would be easierm6 for me to say i believe in punishment, put them ine them. but that's the very culture we're trying to?z

the very reasons that he should be. there is no greaterb y the man has stood there and said i have made a serious mistake, y=e i'm ready to make a difference. and so i'm here today as a

theft of city property. but they have an agenda when it comes to ross mirkarimi. he's a beater of women. he's a liar. he's a criminal. i say the real criminals are running this city.)'tñ that's what's happening in san francisco. and that's why there's a?zíáwp &c"p% vendetta against him. i'm not a democratic. i didn'trc vote for ross mirkarimi. but he has a right, a democratic right to have a

item no. 4. >> i have another item today that will support low-income tenants in san francisco and promote fair and transparent government. there are a few amendments to the original legislation that i am introducing today. that were working ored on with the housing authority and the mare's office on housing and i will invite the representatives up to speak as well to the amendments, although i understand that they are sub [sta-pbts/]ive. so i don't know what that means in terms of process. with the legacy of redevelopment and the more recent predications in the stock of public housing as a result of the federal hope 6 program, my district in particular and other districts have experienced its share of permanent displacement of low-income tenants. this displacement has broken positive community bonds, destroyed tight-knit communitis and contributed to african-american out-migration. with this legislation, no longer will san francisco endorse or fund public housing rebuilds that displace residents outside of their communities or out of san francisco. this is the first step of many t

period. and that there is 1 one for one replacement, so that all of the folks currently living there have a place in the new development. where they can go, that is appropriately sized, et cetera. and that there is good monitoring and tracking. so that this time people just don't kind of fall through the cracks and not end up back, sort of for administrative or bureaucratic reasons and the other thing that is important about this legislation that is an added right. is that there is an appeal process that will be setup. as of now, even though there are some federally given relocation rights if they are violated, people have little recourse. , but a lawsuit and what this would do is actually make a very simple process where people can go to the rent board and appeal their case, if they thought their relocation rights were violated. so we wanted to point out that is a very new and important piece that this legislation offers. >> thank you, next speaker. >> my name is mr. lavell shaw. i support the right to return policy, too. but i also want to make it clear on residents, on the good standing process. because we do not have it clear about what they mean by "good standing." because that could mean various things. to make it clear, so when we make the right to return policy we make it clear on what "good standing" means for the residents? a lot of lo income residents stated as before, african-americans and that is who i represent, the african-american population, the majority and pacific islanders populations. i i think people should know that and san francisco should know we have been driven from our neighborhoods. all of the people in our neighbors are not bad. so we need to have the right to rush policy, return policy, because we want to stay in neighbors that we were born and raised in and have the same rights as another neighborhoods any other speakers? thank you our mayor owes office of housing and the housing authority as well. thank you for being here. supervisor cohen? >> thank you. so one of the current speakers earlier spoke of having a voucher and being able to return. i assume you are talking about a certificate of preference? >> [ inaudible ] [ inaudible ] >> the voucher i was referring to is under the previous program, what has happened is that tenants are given a voucher that isn't enough to pay rent in san francisco. so people are forced to find someplace where the rent is cheap enough to use the voucher. so the right to return would be a different system that would provide -- it doesn't specify what kind of housing would be provided in the interim, but what it's specific on is after the new building was completed the tenant would be able to return and live in that building, and wouldn't be forced to relocation completely out of city. >> thank you. one of the things that i find interesting is when people talk about the african-american experience in san francisco and out-migration and one key point i hope to drive home, when we talk about economic development, we also talk about it in context of workforce development. when we talk about our budget situation where we are in the city, we also talk about cuts by virtue of simultaneously talking about revenue. when we talk about the african-american out-mike migration rarely do we talk about recruitment and retention. when we begin to talk to developers about who they use to market and where they market? that really has a significant impact as to which audience they are actually capturing? now if the city was truly interested in increasing the african-american population, then i would put that the city needs to take the initiative, as well as lead developers. when we are marketing these new rental units on the market, that we are advertising in ebony and essence and jet and some of the african-american journals, publications and associations, so we're able to capturethis community, this market. you said yourself 25% live in public housing. there is an unbelievable amount of wealth within the african-american community, as well as education. when we look at thriving cities like atlanta, washington, d.c., chicago -- i won't use detroit because that is a different situation. but really my rant does have a point. my point is that we really need to get serious about this outmigration. task forces have said it and there is only so much government can do and we really need to begin to hold our private partners accessible. if you are truly look to recruel talented african-americans to come and live in this city, to work for our corporations, to establish businesses then we need to go and speak to them where they are. thank you. >> thank you. supervisor olague? >> yes, i just wanted to thank supervisor cohen for her comments. because we don't talk about inmigration enough and then sometimes when we have talked about the local hiring around construction, i wonder how do we make sure some that some of those folks from the community, who have been displaced or who are part of the outmigration, how can they access some of those jobs? so i think there are more conversations that we need to have around that sort of thing, but thank you for your comments. >> thank you. >> i think that my understanding is that this gentleman asked about the who is being excluded from the right to return legislation? i think the only households that i understand would be excluded would be those who have been evicted. so if you have not been evicted, i think then you could be considered for return to your homes. you know? that is my understanding. >> supervisor cohen. >> thank you very much. this is something that i forget to mention and i'm also a co-sponsor on this, too. as we are less than 90 days with the rebuild of hunters view. we have had zero displacement and we're getting ready within the next 80 plus days to welcome new families into their units. but what mr. shaw was talking about is what exactly does "good standing" mean? so "good standing" and this is for the record, this is where i'm concerned. there is a culture that is sometimes developed in housing where people have been able to get away with not paying their rent. now i understand that we have changed that and we now have the accounting practices to keep people in -- keep better records. but in that vein people in housing are going through a process, the tenants going through a process it become fiscally healthy and understand how to manage their dollars. yes, there is a code of ethicks that did details in writing what is "good standing," and i'm sensitive to what mr. shaw was saying it's a little nebulous about what exactly. arbitrary and i think the arbitrariness that mr. shaw is concerned about and i am concerned with. the housing authority folks are here. >> if i miss finish, supervisor. sorry about that. >> that is okay. because it's not so much up to the housing authority. >> right. >> because as it relates to hunters view, the property apartment is going to be relinquished from the housing [tho-rts/] to john stewart. so in that transition, what if any changes will be made to that "standard of good standing?" >> yes. >> that is a little bit unclear and we within the to make sure and ensure had a every resident that is there now and any unit of housing, when the transition happens from the housing authority to the private management company. that no one is lost or as we heard earlier today, falls through the cracks in the midst of that transition. >> thank you. supervisor olague, did you want to ask mr. alvarez? >> again, thank you, mr. alvarez and kyle, i forgot your last flame, for [tpha*-eufpl/], for name of for all of your assistance. i have heard a lot of concerns around displacement at those sites. so i don't know if you could len to this. >> supervisor, thank you, henry alvarez from the housing authority. i don't know much about marcus gardens. we don't manage those, but in hunters view the notion of right to return and we believe that is an important clarification that and distinction that needs to be made is simply if you are not evicted or being evicted, you will have the right to return
